Yup, still looking for contributions.

Oh so now you've finally finished talking to yourself you want us to actually provide some script?

And you're wondering why people don't let you have sharp objects? (I'm starting to rethink it myself ;)).

I'm happy to do the bulk of the work (or just talk to myself, as you so unhelpfully like to put it :)) but I would like others to chime in with thoughts of offer to write sections, etc.  People seemed happy to help when I first mentioned it, even when I first outlined it, but of course, things go slow around here, so I was just reminding people.

Hey, feel free to add something yourself, or maybe I'll just go back into monologue mode again... your call, neighbour 8)

Once again, sorry I've been lax for the last few months, but this monkey-feeding mallarchy is getting to be a real drag.

Anywho, maybe some of you guys out there in forum land would like to say what you thought about last week's UK visit by Herr Popeski.

Any opinions, thoughts?  Any ex-Catholics who've licked Catholicism in favour of Dudeism?  Any Catholic Dudes?  Any nut with an opinion about what this says about the UK or the Church?

I'll be back to chime in later this week.  Happy musing!

Actually try this on for size.

Hi Rev. Churchman,

The first of my reports from East Anglia is about the following Lady.

Elizabeth Fry..... She of the portrait on the back of the five pound note.

Elizabeth Fry was born into a wealthy family...the Gurneys (founders of Barclays Bank) but don't let that put you off!!

At a young age (18) she began to take an interest in people much less fortunate than herself..ie the poor and homeless the sick and the female prison population in particular.

The following is a quotation from The Howard League for penal reform webpage. Full article Here:

http://www.howardleague.org/elizabethfry/

"Firstly, she visited the prisons and encouraged other middle class women to do so, overcoming official opposition and setting up education classes for women.  She was ahead of her time in the way she treated the prisoners as human beings.  Elizabeth did not impose discipline on them but instead proposed rules and invited the prisoners to vote on them, and she put an educated prisoner in charge.

Secondly, Elizabeth told people in the outside world about prisons.  She used her connections in high places to good effect (despite her religious principles she enjoyed high society).  Both Florence Nightingale and the young Queen Victoria admired Elizabeth for her compassionate exercise outside the home.  She was the figurehead of philanthropic endeavour in this country and today is regarded as one of the early feminists.  In 1835, she testified before the House of Commons Parliamentary committee, established to investigate "The State of Gaols in England and Wales." Elizabeth also spoke before a House of Lords Select Committee in the same year."

Elizabeth also opened a night shelter for the homeless in London and was also instrumental in setting up "visiting societies" in which poor people would be visited in their houses and given help and comfort...not necessarily financial...probably the fore runner of social services.

As if the above was not enough, Elizabeth also opened a training school for nurses which inspired a certain Florence Nightingale to take a group of these nurses to the Crimea to assist the wounded overseas.

Despite her vast wealth and obvious high society connections Elizabeth Fry remained a Lady of the people.

All this was at a time when women didn't even have the vote. A truly inspirational character from history and in my eyes a true dude or indeed heroine.

There is a small statue of her in Norwich outside the Cathedral which I always doff my (imaginary) cap to when ever I pass!

In peace dudes.

Reverend John

Many thanks Rev. John, a worthy candidate, and if I recall, one of Ian Hislop's Dogooders.  Certainly one of the most dudely of that trailblazing troupe of Victorian humanitarians, I'll say.  Nice call and nice summation of her qualifications.  I look forward to further contributions :)

Thanks to the new Dudespaper Article, about a BBC Radio interview with the Dudely Lama and the Grand Old Dude of York, I'm hoping for a bit of a resurgence in interest in this project.  It may take us some time, but I'm sure it'll be worth it in the end.  Any small comment/nugget of info/slight social commentary is welcome here!

I guess hope springs eternal...

Still here, still sitting on it, still not had much time to make any more contributions myself.

I'm all for the slowburn project, so this may take years, but I'm counting on some more contributions before I get too old to remember what this project is all about :)

The Dudarchy in the UK project, in fact.  You seem to have a habit of replying to the thread to question the thread, rather than contribute to it :)  Although I sometimes wonder if you're just baiting me :P

However, let me quote you from page one:

You know the Pompey Dude Posse is there for you (oh bollocks did I just call us the "Pompey Dude Posse", you know who I mean, Klaus and I will be glad to destroy any semblance of organisation you care to attempt)

I'm I'm holding you to it! :)

You're an opinionated human being, as far as I've noticed, so I would value any input you have on the dudeliness of the UK.  We had some good stuff going about a year ago, one pages 1 and 2, but it's kind of slipped away as I've not been making much of an input myself.  However, the idea is to include all UK Dudeists as much as possible to come together and help.

If you need a refresher, check back to the first post on page 1 and you'll see what I'm all about (well, I hope, I'm not known for either my brevity or clarity!! :))

Any input, from anyone, is always welcome, and it's just a refresher post to let people know it's still there, it's not dead, and I'd love to get some more input from all over the UK community, and others who know enough about our Dudely land to add in their two penneth worth.

It's all good, dudes :)

Well, Dude - as you said somewhere 'every little helps'.

I keep meaning to contribute a little sumfin' or nuffin' to your worthy project  - mayhap I'll get round to it. There is possibly  - for me - a problem with coming up with something that exemplifies British Dudeness; after all, we are just a  collection of pasty-faced disaffected cunts, ain't we? I have one or two ideas but they don't exactly convince me, yet. You might try opening it up a little to include (Dude produced) art, media examples and possibly have Johnny & Jill foreigner get the ball rolling with a sub-thread "Hey, you there! Yes, you - tell me immediately what you find Dudely about the UK - and in English: chop! chop!"

Seriously though, I'll get round to it.
